    Wasp and Hornet spray in the pool

    We found a good size wasp or hornet nest in a piece of furniture yesterday. As part of her strategy, my wife pushed the chaise lounge into the pool and probable 20-30 really ****** off wasps were on the surface of the water

    She did several pretty long "attacks" with the spray, it seemed to disperse well, but is there anything I should worry about.
    1) The size of your pool in gallons = 33,500 16x32x40 L
    2) The type filter you have = 300lb Sand
    3) IG
    4) If it's IG, vinyl liner
    5) pump is 1.5hp

    I can't imagine it harming anything. A few ounces in 33k gals ain't much and besides that stuff evaporates really quickly.

    It decomposes into CO2 and CO. I'm sure it's already gone by now.
